There’s going to be a new debate next year about the future of the bust of Nathan Bedford Forrest in the Tennessee Capitol.
The announcement came on Wednesday afternoon after pleas from activists — and some Republican lawmakers.
Tennessee Finance Commissioner Stuart McWhorter, the chairman of the State Capitol Commission, committed to having a meeting before the end of February.
“There are varying and diverse and passionate opinions about this,” McWhorter said during a commission meeting to discuss unrelated matters. “So, for that reason it requires serious time and effort.”
